To your points: 1. You voted to spend more tax money on imprisonment, police busy work, end careers, and stereotype people. You voted to continue a policy that does not work, has not worked and will enrich cartels leading to more death and destruction. 2. Some people use the existing Pharma system to get well-some use it to get high, stay high or just stay addicted. Should we end the Pharma system? I can walk into my Doctors office right now for knee pain and walk out with a prescription. If I press my doctor, he will give me pretty much whatever I want. 3. Driving impaired with any drug, legal or otherwise, is illegal and against the law. There is no test for any Pharma drug in regards to driving-which should MJ be singled out? Either the cop believes the person is impaired or not. Your narrative proves nothing. Alcohol can be bought right now on the shelves. Three drinks of Vodka and I am drunk. Should we reinstate prohibition? Your narrative really proves that advanced medicine can overcome what once was a death blow. MJ isn't the bogeyman here-the user is. Nobody is arguing that legalization will making driving impaired illegal. A little note on DUI's. It used to be if you were impaired, that was it. But that wasn't good enough-enough people weren't going to jail, getting higher rates of insurance and generally speaking-the people weren't scared enough. Out came "the test". So impaired or not, you are "drunk". Before you get all excited, a cop can bust you for .05 and screw with your life. People want a time machine to prevent drunk deaths-they believe the DUI test is that. People still drink and drive every week. ]] 4. Comparing gun toting cartels which chop off heads to a few rednecks in the backwoods is quite a stretch. Yeah, people still do illegal stuff. See point 3. You don't see cartels making moonshine, cutting down forests, dumping pesticides in the forest...etc. I think we can agree hard liquor laws are stupid and only serve to protect certain players. 5. Who cares? The body builds up resistance. Either a person is impaired or they are not. If they are a long term smoker, then they build up resistance. That has been proven. The washington initiative by the way does instill a bad idea into their law-DUI. Making instant criminals out of good people. 6. Call up any cop-they are the standard for impaired driving. 7. Is MMJ a failure because the user opts to use in the parking lot? Is Walgreens a failure if I pop some Oxycontin in the parking lot? If it's a problem, the cops enforce driving impaired by hanging out-just like they do around bars. Oh wait, if I pop some shots in the store parking lot-is prohibition the answer? You called the cop-case closed. Why is it different? Your reasoning is based on fear, stereotypes and the long lost hope that banning something will make it go away. This has resulted in ruined lives, minorities imprisoned in extremely high rates, cartels becoming a force to be reckoned with while we sit back and say "if we just ban it, the problem will go away". I hope you are happy with your choice.
